Linder, Chris – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2019
Employing a power-conscious, intersectional framework (Crenshaw, 1991; Dill & Zambrana, 2009), I argue educators must understand power, privilege, and oppression to effectively support and guide learning and development among student activists. Students from minoritized groups, including students of Color, women, and lesbian, gay, bisexual,…

Hanasono, Lisa K.; Broido, Ellen M.; Yacobucci, Margaret M.; Root, Karen V.; Peña, Susana; O'Neil, Deborah A. – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2019
Although the demand for faculty service has increased substantially in recent years, the workload is not shared equitably among tenure-track faculty (Guarino & Borden, 2017; Pyke, 2011). Women faculty tend to spend more time on service activities than men, and they tend to perform important yet less institutionally recognized forms of service…

Goldberg, Abbie E.; Kuvalanka, Katherine; dickey, lore – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2019
Little research has explored the experiences of transgender or gender-nonconforming (TGNC) students in higher education. Further, only 1 study has included the perspectives of TGNC graduate students (McKinney, 2005), and the experiences of students who identify with nonbinary gender identities (e.g., genderqueer, agender) are scarce in the…

George Mwangi, Chrystal A.; Changamire, Nyaradzai; Mosselson, Jacqueline – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2019
The adjustment of African international students in the United States may be different from the experiences of international students from other regions, as African students are considered racial/ethnic minorities in the United States, and, thus, they are exposed to racism, nativism, and other discrimination. This study focuses on the structural…

Pitcher, Erich N.; Camacho, Trace P.; Renn, Kristen A.; Woodford, Michael R. – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2018
Research indicates that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ+) college students face a hostile campus climate. Despite the hostile campus climate, many LGBTQ+ students persist. Understanding what helps students persist is important to student affairs professionals as they develop data-driven interventions to improve…

This study uncovered cultural predilections of Pacific-Islander students from the American-affiliated Pacific region related to their experiences in a Western setting. The University of Hawaii at Hilo (UH Hilo) serves as the backdrop…

Garibay, Juan C.; Vincent, Shirley – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2018
Students of color remain severely underrepresented in many science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, including environmental fields.
